so you just kept doing the wipeload.bat over and over? even tho your pin wasnt recognised? and it just randomly worked? Did your device turn on ever? thanks
what do you mean 'the modules started to reload from the beginning'? i get the error message almost instantly.

Here are the instructions from the on line web site five lines down where you can get the zipped files Apploader and Wipereload:
The problem is that when one attaches the dev alpha DTM will automatically detect it and run even after you down load the updater --YOU should NOT run DTM :
1Download and extract App Loader 126.96.36.199 (Windows).
2Ensure your Desktop Software is up to date (because need the latest drivers for WipeReload)
3Ensure your Desktop Software is not running (terminate it form system tray and X it at any launch).
4In the location where you extracted the application loader, run the file AppLoaderWebSL_188.8.131.52.
5In the location where you extracted the application loader, run the file AppLoaderWebSL_184.108.40.206.
6Connect your BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device to your computer.
7In the location where you extracted the application loader, run the batch file WipeReload.bat.
8If you have a password set on your device, type your password when prompted
9After your device restarts, complete the set up wizard.
(instructions are from the above link) yes 4 and 5 are the same because the people at RIM are busy writing cool new code-- I added to 3: "(because need the latest drivers for WipeReload)" and to 4)"(terminate it form system tray and X it at any launch)"
and yes we are told to ensure DTM is up to date (no version given, but click on link above) and then that it is not running, well it runs automatically when the device is connected! You do NOT run DTM! Here is the solution:
follow the above steps, but do not launch DTM
impede launch of Desk Top Manager (DTM) by terminating /closing/”X” ing it’s launch (“X” out!!) asap whenever DTM appears to launch and IGNORE Blackberry Device Manager (DVM) disconnect messages: 1) leave DEV alpha powered on; 2) do not connect yet---run AppLoaderWebSL_220.127.116.11 first ---3)run WipeReload 4)connect the Dev alpha via USB—start x ing out stopping all launches of des top manager (DTM), DVM is required, but ignore disconnect/connect messages. As long as the green horizontal status bar increases you are ok. At the end when /if you get the message that the loader cannot connect to the device, because of a passwd, disconnect and try to boot (turn on/off). I got the setup process when it appeared to hang after entering the SSID. I made sure it was charged (overnight) and then reconnected to the PC again terminating DTM and re-ran the wipereload program and it went through the "Connecting to boot ROM" part and now I have OS 10.0.9.388--not sure why it is not 10.0.9.44. Any ideas on why I have 10.0.9.388?
The wipe program runs the following steps (note that when you run the wiper it takes time (2-3min?)for the BB PIN ID and for the devalpha pin to show, be patient!) :
1)Prep--connects to boot ROM (this may have been in error when DTM ran) , dwnloads modules 1 to 56/57 (seemed to change the second time it ran),uploads Ram image, then down loads 2 more modules (the second time I ran the wipe program)
2)Install--extracts device software and you see the green horizontal progress bar--took about 15 minutes, loads system software (about 10-15 minutes w FIOS)
3)REBOOT, connects to device and reboots this takes another 10-15 minutes
At the end of the reboot I got a cannot conenct to device error since passwd protected. I disconnected the device and turned it on and off and then the set-up process began. It got hung up at the wifi step. I reconnected it and ran the wipe program again (You only need install the apploader applicaiton once, and can run the wipe program many times, as needed). It did a reboot of the device and I was good to go. Always terminate DTM when running hte wipe program not DVM.
BTW--I was not able to download the Apploader app with Google Chrome, had to use IE; make sure that the batterey is fully charged before starting the update of the OS.

This reminds me that it seems quite important to have enough battery life left. The indicator on the phone is either wrong or you have a black screen (brick). best to let it charge for 30 minutes and try again after that.
